A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.
Jesus entered a village where a woman named Martha welcomed him to her home. She had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at Jesus’ feet and listened to his words. Martha, who was busy with all the details of hospitality, came to Jesus and said, ”Rabbi, are you not concerned that my sister has left me all alone to do the household tasks? Tell her to help me.”
Jesus in reply said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and upset about many things; one thing only is required. Mary has chosen the better portion and she shall not be deprived of it.”
The Good News as spoken through Luke.
